Premier League giants Manchester United have announced the re-signing of Jonny Evans, eight years after he left Old Trafford.
United announced the deal in a statement on their website on Tuesday.
Evans has signed a short-term deal to enable him to take part in the Red Devils’ upcoming pre-season matches in Edinburgh and San Diego.
The 35-year-old had been training with the under-21 side whilst considering his options following his departure from Leicester this summer.
He will travel as part of the group that will take on Lyon in the Scottish capital on Wednesday before joining the academy group in San Diego while the first-team will be in New York.
Loan spells at Sunderland and Belgian side Royal Antwerp came before he made his first-team debut in September 2007 aged 19.
Evans then became a more regular figure in Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, via another loan at Sunderland in 2008, collecting three Premier League titles, a Champions League and two League Cup winners’ medals.
He remained at the club until 2015 before joining West Brom, and was made the club’s permanent captain in 2017.
A year later, he left the Baggies to go to Leicester following the Baggies’ relegation from the top flight.
Evans was at Leicester for five years, helping them to their sole FA Cup triumph in the 2020/21 season but wasn’t able to prevent them from relegation last term, although he was injured for large parts of the season.
